About FortiGate for AliCloud
By combining stateful inspection with a comprehensive suite of powerful security features, FortiGate Next Generation Firewall technology delivers complete content and network protection. This solution is available for deployment on AliCloud.
In addition to advanced features such as an extreme threat database, vulnerability management, and flow-based inspection, features including application control, firewall, antivirus, IPS, web filter, and VPN work in concert to identify and mitigate the latest complex security threats.
FortiGate for AliCloud supports active/passive high availability (HA) configuration using highly available virtual IP addresses (HAVIP). This enables FortiGate synchronization between the primary and secondary nodes for their configurations and sessions, and when the FortiGate detects a failure, the passive firewall instance becomes active.
Highlights of FortiGate for AliCloud include the following:
- Delivers complete content and network protection by combining stateful inspection with a comprehensive suite of powerful security features.
- IPS technology protects against current and emerging network-level threats. In addition to signature-based threat detection, IPS performs anomaly-based detection, which alerts users to any traffic that matches attack behavior profiles.
- New Docker application control signatures protect your container environments from newly emerged security threats. See FortiGate-VM on a Docker environment.
